 I talked to my team and if you think you are high risk what they will do is let the mom breastfeed for hours and then take a test (they need at least  hours to make the test reliable) and then do a priority on the test and start the baby on the formula (with mom pumping) for the  18 hours it takes to run the test and then when you get the results either continue formula/breastmilk combo if needed.
